the box office and a sports-themed demographic helped bill clinton win his second term. and with one month left, what can mitt romney do to win over latino voters? and coming up next, both presidential campaigns seem to be undergoing an overhaul. we'll tell you about the changes and whether they seem to be a good or not. you're watching msnbc, the place for politics. ♪ [ male announcer ] jill and her mouth have lived a great life. but she has some dental issues she's not happy about. so i introduced jill to crest pro-health for life. selected for people over 50. pro-health for life is a toothpaste that defends against tender, inflamed gums, sensitivity and weak enamel. conditions people over 50 experience. crest pro-health for life. so jill can keep living the good life. crest. life opens up when you do. check out the latest collection of snacks from lean cuisine. creamy spinach artichoke dip, crispy garlic chicken spring rolls. they're this season's must-have accessory. lean cuisine. be culinary chic. boring. boring.

to bill clinton. bill clinton has a touch. >> everyone is aloof compared to bill clinton. >> exactly. >> let's talk about mitt romney. strengths, weakness. >> mitt romney's strength is that he is, comes across as competent, as a capable human being. as somebody who projects an air of authority, especially when he talks about the economy. that is the private sector track record. the flip side, the weakness is the 47%. some of the attacks he's taken in terms of that business record. i think mitt romney's biggest problem though, chris, is the sense people can't be sure exactly if he believes what he's saying. he needs to project authentic passion for what he believes his plan would do for the american economy to make the 47% lives better as well as the other 53. >> what do you think, e.j.? >> i thought the definitive line on politics, what you need is sincerity, if you can fake that, you can do anything. it's troublesome on this question of authenticate. what is authenticity? romney has taken a number of positions on issues which you will be sure obama will try to sneak in there somehow
a statement from the national security council. hillary clinton spoke to the turkish foreign minister and said the u.s. will support turkey in this. all are condemning syria and holding syria to account. this as also more trouble for the administration with benghazi. the hill is now asking for answers. they want a hearing next week. hillary clinton said today that no one wants to know more than she and the president what happened in benghazi, but we've confirmed that the fbi has not been able to get on the ground because of continuing security concerns, and at this point, more documents, secret and sensitive documents like this one, are still at large in that site being secured only by libyans at the scene and not well indeed. >> and on top of that there were demonstrators in the streets of tehran today because the currency there has collapsed. but we remind everybody that tonight's debate is at least supposed to be about domestic and economic items. andrea mitchell, part of our team in denver. we'll talk to you later tonight. >>> even given the clear and distinct choice between these two cand
show rounds. you might say why wasn't it hillary clinton. the man who died worked for her. she is the secretary of state. does that add to the intrigue here as to why the ultimate person in charge wasn't going out? >> well, i think susan rice kind of got the short straw here. hillary clinton, i think our own candy crowley can attest hillary clinton doesn't do talk shows often. i think hillary clinton has been doing this a really long time and knows what it looks like is not going to be what ends up being true, even the next day or in the end. it was caution on her part she wasn't the one and there are those who think she was put in a bad position. >> thank you very much. "outfront" tonight, the chairman of the house intelligence committee and good to see you. appreciate you're taking the time. obviously, now hearing as elyse has been able to confirm there were a decision made. and given to the american people. why did that happen? >> well, i can't say why, but that's incredibly disturbing information. this was not barack obama's ambassador, the democratic am boss darr. it was t
to my defense. i was called a racist, bill clinton was called a racist. i have seen bill talk to you and others saying donald trump is a good guy. we have a good relationship and he is a good guy. i believe the hate tried he had and maybe doesn't have any more for obama was unbelievable but people are afraid to to take obama on. i don't know what it is. >> this is amazing four years later he saved the democratic convention for obama. he said in 2008 they played the race card with me and they planned it from the beginning. >> he felt that very strongly. >> you feel he did that fto you? >> he did. you mention certain things it's racist. any time you criticize obama whether it's trump or anybody else you get the ratest thing going. it's very unfair, not nice. i enjoyed, i must tell you. i love thinking about running. as you know i was doing incredibly well. people liked what i said whether it was about china or opec ripping us off or whether it was about obama. i wish he were a great president. i am a republican. if he were the greatest president i would be a happy guy. it is not workin
democratic that gets elected, it was illegitimate. and then clinton comes along, he's illegit. you had it with kennedy. dead people in chicago really elected him. then clinton came along. he did win. i would think there was this notion that bill clinton was inherently illegitimate and nothing too extreme to dislodge him from the white house because he was de-facto illegitimate. and i think with barack obama, this notion that this could not have happened. this was a nightmare inflicted on us by a.c.o.r.n. >> you are so funny. you have the cartoon sense, the way they look at this. a bunch of people got together. the idea that somehow it doesn't belong to the democrats and bill clinton went to russia when he was a kid, he's some sort of mole, some sort of mata hari. and even kennedy -- why do they think illegitimately, why does the white house belong in the hands of the toris, if you will, the conservatives? >> because i think it's symbolic. they feel the symbol of the country has got to represent the symbol of the values, pushing what they see is the american value system, which is capit
as condescending. back when he told hillary clinton that she was likable enough, remember in 2008 during their debate? he's reportedly been practicing some zingers to use against the president. and while powerful sound bites get lots of plays in the days after the debate, remember where the beef commercial, stuff like that. it's questionable if a few good one-liners will be enough to put mitt romney in the white house. here's the question, what can mitt romney do to win the first debate? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile and post a blog or go to "the situation room" facebook page. >>> president obama's court looks different than it was when he was elected with two new justices he nominated. how could it change in four more years if he is re-elected? joe johns has been looking at this story. yesterday, joe, you did a whole piece on how the supreme court might be affected if mitt romney were elected. today you're looking at how the supreme court could be elected if the president is re-elected. >> right, wolf. if the president is re-elected we already have a pretty good road map to the kind of per
of them. people are saying obama hasn't debated for a long time. he came out of nowhere beat the clinton machine. i think he is going to be strong. i think his one weak point is that he is thin skinned. if romney can manage to get under his skin in some way i think that actually happened in 08 one or two of the clinton debates. i think it could sort of puncture that aura as that obama had. i don't think there is any way you could be decisive. one thing that will help romney is always true of the challenger just being on the same stage as the president instantly raises your stature. i think if he can hold his own and perhaps prevail even to a minor extent he will reverse the momentum which has been rather negative. >> the first debate takes place tomorrow october 3rdrd. our coverage starts not a minute later p.m. meg begin k megan kelly bret bal be there live. >>> you need your first degree weather update who has rain in the east. >> good morning. good morning everyone. we are talking about rain across the east unfortunately today will be a muggy day out here. a lot of humidity and also s
of this, the way that obama had a bounce coming out of the convention, in charlotte, with bill clinton's famous speech? >> he is looking for a comeback moment. what happens next is going to be important. he's going to be giving a speech on foreign policy. he'll be asked about this in interviews in the coming days. if he can build on this, yes. he will start to close the gap. the romney campaign, just happened just at the right moment for them to capitalize on something. knowing you have five weeks left. there's a couple of turns left. >> the next presidential debate, tuesday, october 16th. >> thanks, rick. >> thank you, guys. >>> again, we extend our thanks to rick klein for that. we'll have much more from the abc political team coming up in a little while on "good morning america." >>> now, turning overseas to breaking news from along the border between turkey and syria. for a second-straight day, turkish artillery has opened fire on syria's targets. that's in retaliation for the syrian shelling of a turkish town yesterday. turkey says the shelling was a warning, not a declaration of
. the flexibility that was felt to years ago under bush and clinton, we no longer have that cushion of our own prosperity. the battling has gone worse. absolutely. >> there will be some who point out this is still an energetic place. the energy does not come from government. it might come from the lack of it. america may be forced to find out in the years ahead. >> the british prime minister david cameron was in new york this week to reaffirm his government's goal to spend with their plans & on foreign aid. if all goes to plan, the u.k. will hit the -- to spend 0.7% on foreign aid. back home, there are plenty of politicians to think that's spending so much another country's problems at a time when the u.k. is in recession is madness. emily spoke to david cameron's former speechwriter and the executive director of an action group co-founded by the musician bono. >> whenever in the department is getting cut, is this unjustifiable? >> i do not think it is. it is affordable and the figure you did not hear and which the british public years, it cost just over a penny on each pound of revenue. a pen

is not a member of the department of defense. it should have been a state department person, hillary clinton, or it should have been leon panetta. >> steve: why was she selected to go out and say the same thing over and over on all the shows and not hillary clinton? >> i think it came down to the short straw. of who had to go out and sell the line. she did a horrible job. >> eric: james clapper saying, oops. we may have screwed up and he's the director of national intelligence. right? >> we still then have a problem with our intelligence gathering systems. but it still comes back to the president who is supposed to be getting these intelligence briefings and up with dates every single day and make the decisions. he's the commander in chief. there is a responsibility there. >> steve: does somebody need to be fired over this cover-up and debauchle? >> i think on 6 november, that person will be fired. >> steve: okay. >> eric: next topic, you have a new ad out. it's pretty darn good. let's take a listen to a piece of that ad. >> february 16, 2003, fort hood, texas, lieutenant colonel allen west
. that happened in one or two of the clinton debates and it could puncture that aura that obama has. one thing will help romney . being on the tage. just being on the same stage as the presidentinantly raises your stat u. what will the questions about tomorrow night. will it be fair or balanced in it will be domestic policy . we are entered in knowing what your question should be. what do you want to know. e-mail and twitter us was we'll read them later on. >> brian: in the mean time there is a request for military rotes and the ending of one war and the ongoing war on terror and ending of another war . you would think that the military is anxious to weigh in. that is not the case in terms of demand. >> steve: we talked about this yesterday. if you look at the number of the military requesting absentee ballots. it is down. 70 or 80 or 90 percent lower numbers than we had back in 2008. these are the request are down by 50 percent. and republican senator from texas said this is another example of how the u.s. department of defense under president obama has failed our military. and in fact, he an
to the secretary of state hillary clinton. in that letter, darrell issa and jason chain asked how much the department knew about at least a dozen threats to our ambassador. what else are these lawmakers saying here? >> accounts from whistle blowers, top republicans claiming at least 12 security related incidents before the consulate attack, including this rpg attack in benghazi on june 11. the targeting of the british ambassador is part of a growing body of evidence that the al-qaeda affiliate in north africa was active and seeking targets. the letter from the oversight committee reads in part, quote, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security. the mission in libya was denied these resources by officials in washington. >> i think it's fair to say that we are still working through what we have in the building in terms of documentation, in terms of information about what we knew, who glue it, when they knew and that's part of the process we have to go through. >> hearing is scheduled for the time when witness also testify about the alleged warnings. >> you ha
. 67illion people tuned in. it was the most watched debate since 1992, take you back, that was clinton. clinton. the first president bush, and ross perot. remember, ross perot. that was -- that was quite an election. >> lots of fodder for "saturday night live." >> dana carvey, yeah. >> democratic operatives were hoping no one was watching the debate. which they knew wasn't the case. but -- >> people thought maybe 40 million, 50 million. 67 million no one expected the number. so that really compounds how bad it was. the president had a bad night that many people watching. again, that's momentum for romney to ride. he is. >> doesn't compare to the ratings for this show. nowhere near. nowhere near. >> 67 million. child's play for the overnight. please. >>> well, a disagreement over politics got so heated that police say a south florida man slapped his own wife. 74-year-old jay harley broke down in tears as he appeared before a broward county judge. harley says he loves his wife but they got into an argument over dinner about the candidates. he has been ordered to stay away from her until
are the republican nominee president george bush, the independent russ perot, and governor bill clinton, the democratic nominee. my name is carole simpson. and i will be the moderator for tonight's 90-minute debate. >> 90-minute debate, she says. that is carole simpson then. and here is carole simpson today. once again, the lady in red. carole simpson, amazing seeing you here, 20 years later, welcome. you know, all kinds of history made that night. you and i were talking on the commercial break, people recognizing you all around the world in the 20 years since. and it was unique about that night, the three debaters, not the usual two, you had, my goodness, questions from the audience, you had yourself, you're the first woman to host a presidential debate. just -- if i may, first question, perspectivewise, you presided over history, did you not? >> i did. and that was the most exciting -- it was the pinnacle of my career to be able to moderate a presidential debate that is like every reporter's dream in washington is to have that opportunity. so i was thrilled. and i don't like you talki
, and that makes it different this time because it's a lot of people still say -- you heard bill clinton, he put it in -- it's almost emblazoned now. >> four years ago, it deid feel different. >> now we are hearing that no one could have done better in job growth and that perception was supposedly different. we had people come in here that were thinking '80 was even worse. >> the new standard. we failed so this is good. >> the one thing that is helping the president is the rebound in home prices and the fact that i think -- because actually consumer sentiment is on the rise in the last couple of months. and i think a lot of that is that people are reading that home prices are getting better, they feel there's a turn in that market. and i think that's playing it, as well. the unemployment rate is still stubbornly high, but people don't feel all that bad and i think that's one of the reasons the stock market is doing well. >> the question is how many people are participating. >> front page article in the journal this morning is that despite the fact that we're sitting at a four year cycle high, we
about the 47 percent. >> former president clinton is out campaigning for mr. obama. he said obama and harris said a bad economy and is making strides to get america back on track. >> and manufacturing jobs are growing for the first time since the 1990's when i came up here. we have a quarter of a million people more working in the automobile industry working alone because of the restructuring which the president's opponenet opposed. >> passengers claimed they were told to brace for a crash landing. some are wondering if there really was a ferret. threat. >> for class fliers are beginning to book trips on different carriers. >> it is on safe in the oppositionunsafe in the up position. >> everything shows satisfactorily so we will get back to you. >> the flight that did not make it to it's destination. the plane turned around 10 minutes into the flight. the plane eventually touched down safely at dfw. >> a cannot strike. they cannot do a walk out. the employees have been treated so badly for so long. >> on tuesday the company reported a third flight experienced less seats. the
talking about with hillary clinton when he said you're likeable enough, hillary. that was a similar dynamic. obama was winning the likability race there. he said it almost in an offensive way. he's got to be careful that -- obama doesn't have a lot of respect for mitt romney. >> exactly. does that manifesto owe that's going to be hard to keep under wraps? >> i shouldn't say obama personally. i know the people around him and the campaign, they're dismissed with this guy. i don't think there's a lot of personal chemistry between them. obama has to make sure that doesn't come out, he doesn't seem air gant or dismissive about this guy being on the stage with him. >> i want to -- these digs at president obama. that's something unnatural. is that a great idea? i found that really shocking. >> the bad idea is telling people about it beforehand. all of them do that. if you talk to the debate coaches and the guys who prep the candidates, they always prepare the zingers. a lot of the ones we think of historically were ones that were prepared going into the race. but you don't go out and tell
given bill clinton's speech and given the bump in the polls and the right track/wrong track stuff has improved. people have sort of come around to thinking that maybe it was a tough four years for anyone. can romney ever make the case that it is still a really bad economy that we're under? this is the worst recession. can he make it without looking nasty? >> i think he's got to make it. i think he's got to get people to look down the road and see the train wreck that's coming. >> not the one we've already had. >> 1.1 trillion in deficits racking up every year. we can run about 200 and keep the debt of gdp constant. which means we have a $900 billion tax increase coming. there's only about $1 trillion of income taxes. these are enormous tax increases that have to come. the president has fought every spending cut that's come along. he has a little bit, $50 billion from seniors and obama care to pay for some of obama care, but the rest of it will have to be covered by cost reduction, which he's fought every step of the way for taxes. >> i wonder, howard, can you -- is it possible to win
former president bill clinton will be there. then later a bill concert at the nokia theater. live to los angeles now and the white house correspondent, dan lothian. the nokia theater live in los angeles, what's going on here, entertainment or politics? they are colliding here. two different strategies, romney with arousing crowds in florida and the president taking yesterday off and today keeping it relatively low key 30 days until the big day. what's the agenda in l.a. tonight? let me guess, money? >> reporter: that's right. he took a -- you pointed out yesterday he was celebrating his wedding anniversary because he was actually out of town in denver on the actual anniversary. so they celebrated that over the weekend. then coming here the president has come to california as kind of his atm. he does a lot of fund-raisers here from the hollywood set and others and has been able to pull in a lot of cash. that's primary focus of the president's trip. as you pointed out he's having the big concert with big names, earth, wind and fire, katy perry and george clooney is expected to deliver rema

to the secretary of state, hillary clinton, the house oversight committee alleges 12 incidents that show the deteriorating security situation on the ground in libya. the reported incidents include a libyan security force so afraid for its own safety that family members urged the guards to quit in the weeks leading up to the murders. also threats specifically targeting ambassador stevens. the letter reads in part, quote. >> reporter: fox news first reported friday that the physical security was so substandard at the benghazi consulate that it required a waiver signed off in washington by the secretary of state or the head of foreign building operations. a state department spokeswoman said there would be no comment on that wafer until their internal investigation was complete. jenna: the drip, drip, drip of information continues now weeks later after this event. any response on capitol hill now to the administration's latest claims about what's going on and the attack as it stands? >> reporter: well, in an interview with fox news, the head of the house intelligence committee, republican co
the tax rates in the united states, where they were during the bill clinton administration in '90s when the economy was doing just fine. what's wrong with that argument? >> nothing. but -- you need to do -- if you are going go down that path you have do that over time. can't do that cold turkey. i mean, that's just too much of a hit for our after-tax income. particularly in the context of what is still a very weak economy. if you want to go down that path, again, i don't think we need to, between don't need to see tax rates rise that much. if you want to go down that path, only way to make logical sense of that is phase that in over time so people can digest that and wouldn't push us back into a recession. i don't think we need go down that path. we need tax revenue, we need to see additional tax revenues generated. we don't need to see that much general rayed. that would be counter-produce. >> what if they let the taxes lapse for the wealthiest americans which is what president obama wanted those families making more than $250,000 a year, individuals making more than $200,000 a year, w
back four years ago, he did pretty darn well against hillary clinton who is a tough debater. he survived those primaries and did a pretty good job against john mccain in three tough debates in the financial crisis and some of the big debate in 2008. >> the senator of the foreclosure crisis arguably. that could hurt the president. >> it can, because it's sort of the right climate for mitt romney to take advantage of the president's battle ground, foreclosure of the country. double digit unemployment in the state here. worse than the national average. what the president is trying to do is say look, not just low her expectations from the debate but say he has got a better plan for the future. take a listen. >> governor romney is a good debater. i'm just okay. but what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard working americans. the president trying to focus on the future not his record. the past seems to be working in this battleground not by a lot but the real clear politics average of
